This year’s Monterey Motorsports Reunion honored the 50th anniversary of Shelby, and the incredible number of cars that showed up was a fitting tribute to both the company and its late founder. You can see the full set of photos from the event over at Autoblog.com.
While I was somewhat disappointed with the Ferrari 250 GTO showing at the Monterey Motorsports Reunion, the collection of cars at Pebble Beach was simply stunning. No less than 21 examples were in attendance, representing more than half of the 250 GTO population. With each worth approximately $25 million, the line up was worth more than half a billion dollars.

The winner of the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours has been announced – a 1934 Voisin C-25 Aerodyne owned by Peter Mullin, and of course, I was there to capture the celebration. You can see more photos and read about the car over at Autoblog.com.
The Motorsports Reunion is always one of my favorite parts of the Monterey Car Week. Seeing vintage cars in action is much better than seeing them parked on grass, and it provides a better opportunity to get a variety of photos of each car. This year the event featured Jaguar, and there was entire race dedicated to the Jaguar E-Type, regarded as one of the most beautiful cars of all time. You can see the photos of the E-Types as well as all the other cars over at Autoblog.com.
Hennessey has already put my Venom GT photos to good use. The car was on display at the RM auction in Monterey this weekend, and my photography was featured next to the car.
Ahead of the Pebble Beach Concours on Sunday, a selection of the car participate in a tour around Monterey. It provides a chance to not only get a preview of the cars, but to photograph them on some of the most beautiful roads on the country. This year was highlighted by several Ferrari 250 GTOs, which will be making an appearance at several of the events throughout the rest of the week.
